retirement
« on: August 23, 2016, 07:57:13 AM »
Pretty sure it is known I am retiring from hosting contests had fun with making igby, yolympics, and the other contests I hosted. I got to talk to a lot of great people through the contests so thanks guys.

By the numbers
18475 score submissions
401 players
at least over 100 games
15 contests

Thanks for all your work and contributions, Wolf.

IGBY, Yolympics, and others are now a permanent fixture in the online score-chasing community and hobby. They have helped revitalized interest and given reasons another reason to work harder towards their high score goals. We'll be looking to continue having these on a yearly basis with different organizers (Jeremy Young, George Strain, etc.) as necessary.

The contests won't be the same without you Wolfy...  I mean... will there still be last minute rules changes to keep it exciting?   Kappa <stirpot>

Based on the fact debates like leeching, team balancing, and controller types will never end (mostly due to being subjective), I fully expect some good ole rule changin' will happen again. At the least, they will be suggested or argued. Unfortunately, I expect the Hollywood hucksters to win out most of the time.  <Tim> <stirpot>

Thanks Wolf for all the time and effort you put into your tournaments.

Thanks to you I've been able to play in direct competition against some of the best classic gamers in the world (and Barra).

Good luck to Jry and Dave1 Strain in carrying the torch forward.

Wolfy, I played in my first IGBY this year and loved it (even though I don't think I earned but about 8 points for my team by the end...). Anyways, thanks for all that you've done. You will be missed!

Thank you very much for the tournaments.  They definitely have been a blast.

You were always the brain child behind these tourneys, even in the early days pre-igby on RU etc

Bridging the gap has made these tournaments as great as they are and we have you to thank for that.
They'll forever in my mind be known as Wolf Tournaments whether you're involved or not

Nicely put.

So much fun had by so many people, pulled out of thin air by the Nards.

A bit sceptical about this 'retirement' tho. A few months of that godforsaken animu and that bloody music will drive you back into our arms, Wolfie.

Jammvyy : im glad your hear becuse i have somthig to say to you

I personally think this is a cry for help.  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4HAzFG8-NAjnwMuHUz4LeNs-g6K28S9e

But seriously, thanks Wolf - these were the first competitions I ever participated in, and except for this last one, they were a blast.
